Art enables students to express their thoughts, ideas, and
most importantly, their imagination. It is natural for a child
to experiment in painting and drawing, thus, it is the objective
of Art class to encourage and enhance this outlet of expression.
Art will be pursued in different mediums, allowing students
to experiment and learn different techniques. The curriculum
offers opportunities for experimentation in drawing, painting,
printmaking and sculpture/construction, using the six elements
of art. The elements of art are a "visual alphabet"
used by the artist: line, color, line, form, value, texture,
shape and space. Students will study the color wheel, and
recognize primary, secondary, warm and cool colors. Artwork
of famous artists will be reviewed, allowing students to observe
works by the same artist and from the same art movement.
